Koh Khai Nok

Just 15 minutes by speedboat from the east coast of Phuket is the famous chain of small islands known as Koh Khai.

The island is well known for its picture-perfect white sand beaches, which are dotted with loungers and canopies where you can laze around all day. Even small bars are available on the islands where you can enjoy beer, coconuts or soft drinks.
